I think the person who filmed the famous "That's Incredible" footage was someone called Kevin Duffy. I learnt this from a blog that posted the following pic (and it was described as a still from a mokele mbembe film) and cited him:

Doing some more research on Kevin Duffy, I found this:

So far it seems the famous lost footage is a hoax :( Whether this is the actual footage from "That's Incredible" I am not sure but from the clipping, I can only say it is.


I've sent a message to Roy Mackal to confirm this but I don't think I'll get a reply.

I would still like to see the footage myself for curiosity wise but other than that...my hopes from seeing a legit film of mokele mbembe are all but gone.

Thanks for posting and thanks for the links.

I have never seen the 'That's Incredible' footage, so I can't say if the image is taken from it, but I was always under the impression the footage was a hoax.

Its always nice to read about Mokele though. :)

  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

I always thought the "That's Incredible" video was that aerial video showing a wake in a lake. As far as I know the "Log" photo is just a photo and though from about the same time, was not from Thats Incredible. I could easily be wrong though. But, I've been following Mokele Mbembe for like 7 years online here and never seen this other Thats Incredible video. I actually went looking for it like about a month ago and could not find anything other then the photo you post and the wake video. The wake video I know is confirmed to be from Thats Incredible.

Edit: Digging into it a bit more.

I guess NOT CONFIRMED is more accurate. Because the wake video is supposedly from 1992, but That's Incredible was from 1980 to 1984.

The photo for Duffy would be from the right time frame, if the data on the photo is real. But, I don't see his name associated with any expeditions or with That's Incredible. But, I'll keep looking.

Edit: It seems that the episode was #26. But, I've not been able to find it online yet.

The image I posted was said to be a still from a mokele-mbembe film. I didn't think Kevin Duffy was associated with "That's Incredible" until I saw the clipping where Duffy is mentioned by name. Doing some more research, there is a Kevin Duffy who has written books on Congo pygmy tribes. I can only assume it's the same Kevin Duffy that was involved with mokele-mbembe. This is where I drew the conclusion that the still might be authentic and from "That's Incredible". Also from reading the clipping, Mackal describes the head as being carved and this is what the still looks like to me.

good find bulldogzrep. to me the head in the pic looks artificial, i.e. doesn't strike me as a living creature. perhaps the guy who posted the picture knows of the actual footage (considering the pic is from the thats incredible video)?

Cheers axiom, the person from the blog cited the picture and I'm pretty sure that's the end of it, though I'll double check if he knows of the footage.

I believe the aerial footage you're speaking of is old footage from a Japanese film crew that was researching Mokele-mbembe .  This can be found easily on you tube.

I just received a reply from Roy Mackal:

"Hi, There is no authentic footage of Mokele mbembe that I know off. Best, Roy Mackal"

I've done a lot of snorkeling in clear water rivers in Florida and have seen a lot of logs sticking out of the water that look very similar to the above photo.  

Sorry!

You are totally correct. I fixed this in the other Mokele thread, but forgot I'd posted that in this thread too. Thanks for the clarification. :nw:

Here's a write-up from the LOCH NESS BLOG (looks like Bulldog and I stumbled onto the same info):

Bulldog, did you inquire as to whether or not Mackal has a copy of the video?

I wrote to Mackal whether the footage shown in "that's incredible" was hoaxed, and his reply was that he doesn't know of any authentic footage. I didn't ask whether he had a copy and I don't think he does based on what he replied to me. I can see that you are one of the lucky few who has seen the footage, any chance you can describe it in full?

p.s. I didn't write the article but am assuming they got the info from the forum here
